NMA Issues 1,000 Press Cards In 2021

The News Media Association has issued 1045 cards to newsgatherers working in the news media industry so far this year.

Press cards are formally recognised by all police forces in the UK, by the Ministry of Justice, the Royal Households and by other public bodies.

The cost of a press card is £20 for those working for NMA members and £40 for those working for national and regional news media who are non-members.

The NMA issues press cards as part of its media facilities service for member publishers which also includes the Royal Rota scheme enabling national and regional titles to access pooled pictures from high profile royal and political events across the UK.

The number issued so far in 2021 represents a small rise on the same period last year.  

To apply for a press card please contact Laura Skerrett for an application form.
